David's Red Chile Tamales
You can wrap tamales in foil and refrigerate up to 2 days before serving, or freeze them up to 3 months. To reheat refrigerated tamales, steam them still wrapped in the husks, for 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through. To reheat frozen tamales, take them directly from the freezer, wrapped in foil (do not pack tightly), and heat them in a 350 degree F oven for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours.
Test Kitchen Tip:
For a milder tamale, use 4 dried ancho and 2 dried New Mexico peppers.
